    Week 5 day 3

    I took 3 attempts but then finally got there just ran 3 minutes followed by 3 minutes etc, mentally it worked and I got there, slow and steady wins the race
  5. Smoking! I stopped a year ago after 20 years as a light smoker by buying a Vape e cigarette. It was soooooo easy and I've never felt better, or smelled better come to that, go for it
  6. I'm on week 3 day 3 with my 18 year old son, both too heavy, this is my second try, I got to week 6 last time but then moved house and got out of the habit. That was 3 months ago so had to start from scratch, it's tough but we help eachother

    Wk6 d2 completed, made the distances but not the Times. That will improve, went away at the weekend for a party and I've had lung or pain in the top of my chest, feels like indigestion, hope it passes.
  8. ok well im on week 5 day 1, completed it this morning, it wasn't too bad, week 4 was harder. Got aches in my back, calves, and now outside my right foot, gotta smile though my body is coping well carrying all that weight. not noticed any difference in body measurements yet but i definitely feel better, and the high after completing each day is superb. its funny i always post how im dreading tomorrow and then i complete it anyway, fair enough its hard but its only 1 minute at a time, one section at a time, one day at a time. i know how hard it can be to have to restart from the begining so thats what is keeping me going, i am aware that at some stage i may have to repeat a week but thats not a fail. i remember from my fit days 20 years ago how much i loved being fit and how much energy i had and i need that back.

    Distance vs. Time

    I had trouble looking at that but remember walking pace is 4mph this is only 5mph so it's a brisk walk. 60mins/5mph = 12 mins per mile so yes it looks fast but it's between a walk and a jog. I've been doing 10mins per mile pace up to week 5 then failed the 20min run as it was too fast, so slowed down and now it's fine. I wouldn't worry too much about speed at this stage it's more about completing the sections, the speed will improve.

    Nice to see you are keeping going and positive, you WILL do it, I've pulled my achilles tendon running too fast but a couple of days rest stretches and ice packs and I completed wk5d3 so it's now becoming an activity I'm looking forward too, up to now it's been soo tough.

    Waking up today with a hunger to run, my legs are pumped. But I've got a 5 hour drive ahead of me so will have to be tomorrow. Today is rest day anyway. Left achilles still sore, but been stretching it off, I guess it's shortened with inactivity over the years. Feeling really positive, c25k rocks!

    Took almost 8 weeks, but I clobbered W5D3 today!

    I did wk5 day yesterday, nice and slow 4.5mph found it pleasant and really gave my confidence a boost, I can see why it there to give a challenge.

    Ok slowed it down to a steady jog and completed Wk5 D3 just now, it was easy and fun loved every minute. The advice I got on here that I was going too fast was good. Thanks

    Awesome read, I completed wk5 d3 today 2nd attempt, last attempt was way too fast so I slowed it down and found it easy today.
